Over at Sweet Pea Stamps it is "Artist of the Week". This will take place one week over the month and a specific artist will be the "artist of the week" so all the Design Team members will make cards/creations using this designer's creations. There is also a bonus for customers. During this one week ONLY and for this artist ONLY there will be 15% off this artist's images. That's brilliant isn't it? Make sure you pop on over to the shop and have a look at Norma J Burnell's rubber stamps - they are all gorgeous.
There are too many beautiful images of Norma's to choose from but I have used the rubber stamp called "Sapphire". She's a gorgeous lady along with her beautiful bird. I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and highlighted areas with my white gel pen. I have inked around the image with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans distress inks.
The backing papers I have used are from Summertime Designs and I have edged them all with my Henna Promarker. I have made some flowers out of the papers using a Spellbinders die, scrunched them up, inked around with my Faded Jeans distress ink and held them together with buttons. I have finished the card off with some ribbon, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and pearls.
